D-Link Wireless Range Extended announced for home WiFi networks


By

Delivering speeds of up to 300Mbps, the Wireless Range Extender expands network connectivity to wireless devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets, offering fast web-browsing, smooth online gaming, uninterrupted music and video streaming, fast downloading/uploading speeds, and Skype or Facetime calls without any lag time or glitches. The device is equipped with Wireless N technology and uses multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signals to significantly outperform previous-generation Wireless G devices. The antennas make use of a home's environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots. In addition, the Wireless Range Extender features a simple one-button installation and is universally compatible with all wireless brands[i] for added flexibility.


Interesting little device that's essentially the size of an power outlet plug. It works over WiFi Protected Setup (WPS), which is supported with Apple's AirPort Extreme. It supports 802.11g/n and WPA and WPA2 security. The D-Link Wireless Range Extender has a list price of $49.99.
